An Upstate home promoted as a homeless shelter was searched by authorities who say it was actually housing something else.
Officers from the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office found no homeless persons at Healing Ground, LLC in the Wellford area of Spartanburg. The Sheriff reports that they did find drugs… lots of them.
Narcotics investigators recovered five pounds of marijuana, almost forty grams of hash, and 220 prescription pills. The search also uncovered three handguns and over six hundred dollars in cash. An additional search at the home of the property’s owner Laurie Ann Mugavero uncovered more drugs and weapons.
Mugavero and another man she lived with were arrested on multiple drug charges. A third man, Richard Mugavero, was arrested at the Healing Ground property. Laurie Ann was released on bail.
